The final project for my sculpture class was to create a 'thing' that implied something. After way too many project changes, I came up with this. Knit in Patons Classic Merino and Bernat Softee Chunky.
The hands were made using Knitty's Urban Rustic Gloves pattern and then felted so they could be formed to realistically hold the scissors. For the 'arms' I just picked up stitches and knit a few rounds. The first one in the picture is already felted.
Here's the finished puppet sitting in my dad's recliner. It's faceless so it can be anyone you want...and it's more than 4 feet tall. Knit in two weeks. I used the basic shaping and finishing directions for the Knit Your Own Rockstar in SNBN, but the rest was completely made up.
I was so mad that I forgot my camera and had to use my crappy phone. This is it all set up -- a marionette cutting himself lose. And yes, what it's attached to is supposed to resemble a cross. The scissors are real (although I tried to knit those too).
I got an A.
